Staff changes: new admins, mod
« on: Thu, 07 March 2013, 10:15:53 »
Folks,

We're adding two new staff members and promoting one existing staff member today:

First, tsangan has been promoted to administrator from global moderator, and will be co-mod-lead with hashbaz.

Second, the extremely talented Matt3o will be joining the staff as an administrator. He will be helping to develop the forum front and back-end.

Third, and last (but not least!), aggiejy, creator of the classic geekhack logo, and overall great guy, will be joining the staff as a Global Moderator.

Please welcome (or re-welcome!) them all to the geekhack staff! We're looking forward to making this place that much better for you with them.

congrats to all! I look forward to working with everyone.

Also, I didn't know aggiejy created the old logo! That's excellent.

Congratulations, everyone. Also, to those past mods/admins as well, who I never got the chance to congratulate.

I just have one problem: where is all my power!?
I'm going to do what I want to do, when I want to do it, how I want to do it, and you better hope I don't do it to you.

I doubt I would ever be made a mod as I like freedom of speech too much. (Reaper doesn't like it when I swear...) I would rarely do 'the job' of moderating, I would mostly just be doing what I always have. Though I guess you could say that that's good in a way as I wouldn't be abusing the power.

There are a lot of people that wonder that about your posts as well.

I kinda feel like a freeloader a bit, you guys do all the work, and I get all the benefits.  I guess I should contribute some money or something.
